BritsinCrete has learned that the Lassithi Municipality of Agios Nikolaos has serious plans afoot to re-boot the community of Milatos on the north coast of Lassithi. The infrastructure moves would be a welcome boost to locals and the British and other expat residents alike, perhaps benefitting the property prices too? A recent meeting at the end of May 2020, on reviving the community of Milatos (within the administrative region of Vrachasi), the Mayor of Agios Nikolaos Mr. Antonis Zervos met with community Vrachasi councillor, G. Astroulakis and the residents of the area Mr. G. Lapidaki and G. Lassithiotaki.  What's likely to be involved? more ...



Key points on the table for discussion to upgrade this wonderful hideaway location :

- to Improve irrigation of the area which is not served by TOEB (agricultural water authority) of Pano Merambello - rural areas of *Mirabello Bay. This includes Milatos. 

- Improvement of daily life issues as part of the current discussions of re-establishing the Milatos Community as a recognised entity

- Improvement of the OTE (telephone service) and terrestrial digital TV signals, Both of which are currently in need of upgrades.

Mayor Zervos, said that  the issues raised by the residents of Milatos are already in the proposals of the community of Vrachasi of which Milatos is part,  and will be continue in consultation with the community of Vrachasi itself. 

Is Milatos hoping for greater autonomy? Will it boost property prices? A good question as improvements mentioned are major considerations.

Milatos is an upmarket enclave and a gem of a little resort that has just one five star hotel, a pretty little harbour, great eateries on the shoreline and an away- from-it-all feel about it. It is accessed by windy roads from Vrahassi, Neapolis and Sissi.  Canny Dutch, Germans, Swiss and Brits have made the upper village and surrounding area and converted olive groves into their residences. Most have renovated or built new homes in an unspoilt environment.

*Note: The region of Mirabello is the northernmost part of the Lassithi Prefecture to the west of Mirabello Bay of which Elounda, Neapoli and Agios Nikolaos are part.
